Accolades for Johnny Reid have ever increased since the release of his sophomore album, Kicking Stones, which has helped the Scottish-born, Canadian singer/songwriter achieve CCMA Awards for Top Selling Canadian Recording and Top Male Artist. With his third release, Dance with Me, Johnny’s stature as a bright star in Country music is undeniable.
Johnny’s two platinum albums were produced by Moraine/NW1 co-published writer/producer Brent Maher, who has had phenomenal success co-writing and producing many Nashville stars, including Kenny Rogers, Shelby Lynne, Wynonna and most noticeably all of the Judd’s records. The power and beauty of Johnny’s two albums-- Kicking Stones and Dance with Me--prove to be a testament to Johnny’s artistic gifts and Brent genius as a co-writer and producer.
Brent is also nominated at the CCMA Awards for Songwriter of the Year, having co-written “A Woman Like You” with Johnny Reid.
NW1, Nettwerk Music Group’s publishing division, is extremely proud to be working with Moraine Music and their tremendous roster of writers and artists, including Johnny Reid, Mike Plume (who receives his first CCMA nomination for Roots Artists of the Year based on the success of his first single “This Is Our Home (8.30 Newfoundland)”), Brent Maher, Jenai and Mark Selby.
Johnny Reid will be performing at the CCMA Awards and Mike Plume will be presenting.
The 2009 CCMA Awards will take place in Vancouver on Sunday, September 13 at GM Place and will be broadcast nationally on CBC Television with encore airings on CMT in Canada.
